Behind the Scenes with Chelsea Jenkins
Kellogg's Chelsea Jenkins talks about creating change and why it's sometimes good to cause a bit of healthy tension.
I've had the opportunity to connect with and learn from executives of major brands at MediaPost's Insider Summits. In the process I've discovered some truly impressive women -- not only for the work they do, but their stories behind the scenes. With Brand Insider: BTS, I get to pull back the curtain on some of the most influential women marketers as they talk about their path to success: the twists and turns, obstacles, inspirations and the valuable lessons learned along the way.
I've been able to really see the world and end up in some cool environments, but in navigating those different industries, definitely learning the the challenges, and the hard truths as well, of what it's like to be able to progress as a young black woman in in those different spaces. Those different spaces are media, tech and now CPG, but Chelsea Jenkins has no regrets- challenges and all- because it landed her where she is today, the director of cultural & inclusive marketing at Kellogg. In this episode of Brand Insider: BTS, Chelsea talks with me about why we all need to use our voice and speak up when we see things aren’t right; whether it’s for ourself or on behalf of many. She also shares her daily affirmations, why she sometimes needs to just let go, and how she takes her pizza...with pasta on the side please! You can watch the entire conversation here:
